Semesterbeitrag (semester fee)
Under current legal regulations, every student must pay contributions to the student body (currently 8.00 EUR) and the Studentenwerk Leipzig (Leipzig Student Services) (currently 106,50 EUR) - meaning a current total of 114.50 EUR every semester. Students who have withdrawn from the student body do not pay the contribution to the student body.
Newly enrolled students also pay a one-off deposit of 10.00 EUR for the machine-readable student card (UniCard). With your enrolment documents, you will be given a payment form specially prepared for you (please do not pay beforehand).
The university administration has a legal obligation to collect this semester fee from students and to forward it free of charge to the StudentInnenrat (student council) and the Studentenwerk Leipzig (Leipzig Student Services) for statutory use. If you have any questions about the use of these funds, please contact the two institutions directly.
A basic amount to cover the semester ticket is included in the semester fee for Leipzig Student Services which all students pay.
The basic amount for the LVB entitles students to use certain services in the tariff area of the Leipzig public transport services between 7.00 pm and 5.00 am. All-day travel is included for the weekend.
Payment of the basic amount is shown on the UniCard for a semester at a time.
You have the option of paying your semester fee using the self-service function on the internet. If you click the function Bezahlen und Rückmelden (payment and re-enrolment), you will be given information about the semester fee you have to pay. You can then place an order for a one-off direct debit for this amount. By entering your TAN, you approve the terms of the direct debit procedure. Please note that you must be the holder of the account or entitled to sign for the stated account. If the direct debit is returned or you enter your account details incorrectly, the Studentenwerk Leipzig (Leipzig Student Services) will charge a processing fee of 10.00 EUR in every case.
